His son, Aaron Fraser helped to prove him guilty by collecting the remainings of his mother's body from his childhood home in 2014 where he reached his brother-in-law.

After Judge Steven Whittington announced his Mr. Haim his sentence, Fraser said,

I honestly don't feel that different than I did four years ago before I found her.

He further said,

I always believed he killed her and that justice needed to happen, but even today, when the judge said he’s going to have a life sentence, it wasn’t this great emotional feeling that I had

According to Florida Times-Union, Fraser tried to tell police that his father hurt his mother when he was 3, but no one believed him. Not even his mother's family members believed him. Last week, Fraser told Action News Jax he 'always knew' his mother was buried.

Bonnie Haim disappeared in January 1993. Days later, her car was found near the Jacksonville International Airport, Florida while her purse was found in a hotel trash-bin. At that time, Haim told officers his wife left their home without their son after their argument about their marital problems.
